Overall Satisfaction with TIBCO Cloud Integration (including BusinessWorks and Scribe)

The department of IT uses Scribe. It is to integrate the data between systems: Salesforce and databases in SQL Server. It is used to have data synchronized in real time, mainly for the payments and creating accounts in the related system. The rest of the integration is used to replicate the data or to sync it to the target system.
  • You can quickly build a simple integration.
  • It is in a cloud so it's easy to access the site.
  • When there is a big amount of the data sometimes it is hard for Scribe to deal with this in the real-time integration.
  • It is not so easy to go back to the previous page since Scribe site leads me always to the main page.
  • It is hard to search in a history execution, you cannot go to a specific date.
  • Negative: when Scribe went down, people couldn't do payments.
  • Negative: we spent a lot of time to fix the data because Scribe didn't sync it correctly.
  • Negative: we don't trust Scribe and we created additional external integrations to do the scheduled data fixes.
I used only Scribe and I was not the person who decided to choose this tool so I don't think I can answer this question.
It is good if you need to have a tool to integrate the data in a quick way. It is easy to set up and to build new integrations. But if it is going to be complex and you want to have everything in one organization, you probably will need to have an extra server to deal with this.

I could create quite complex integrations and I was able to deal with most of the issues in Scribe. Sometimes I missed the knowledge about dealing with many issues at once and solution was usually to set up everything separately.
